So… Contrary to what it looks like on the blog, I do wear outfits that don’t include black & white, red or stripes. I guess these just happen to be the cutest and most worthy of the blog. I am wearing this wool skirt as much as I can before the weather warms up and I want to stay away from anything that even rhymes with the word wool.
And yes I got my hair cut. My hairdresser decided to shave down both sides of my head this time. I’m not really complaining, I’ve always had a bit of an obsession with mohawks. And I love the contrast of a crazy haircut with a girly outfit.
Yesterday was the before last day of the challenge but it feels like a whole new one with this new haircut. Every outfit feels fresh and new, imagine the possibilities to come! Don’t worry, I’m excited enough for all of us. Speaking of yesterday, I got 2 Twiggy comments, which make me ridiculously happy. My friend at work said she was staring at me all day then all of a sudden it clicked and she remembered who I reminded her of. Twiggy. Well Gee Golly thank you! is what I (did not) say. I may need to lighten my hair and start wearing little mod dresses.
So Matt was having the boys over for a
nerdfest boys night so I stayed over at my sister’s. It worked out well since I left work an hour late (keep in mind it takes 1.5 hours for me to get home) and she lives closer. Since I had her place to myself, I made some food and sat down to watch The Holiday. I couldn’t help but feel I was having a little mini vacation from home myself. I couldn’t help gushing over the house and landscape in England that Kate Winslet’s character lives in. Anyone over there want to do a house swap for 2 weeks? As long as you don’t mind I don’t have a house and it would be a package deal with Matt and Hurley. Oh and I don’t have a pool. Gimme a shout! (Good thing Matt doesn’t read my blog…)
So today (Tuesday) is the last day of my challenge. Which means last day of obligatory outfit pictures! That’s what I ‘m most excited about.
At some point I got it in my head to make french toast. So that’s exactly what I did this morning. I originally got this recipe from the TV guide way back when. (does TV guide even still exist?) Anyway since I didn’t keep the tv guide in question, I just googled it. It wasn’t too difficult, this was “Mr Burn’s French Toast” after all. Yup, the same evil yellow Springfieldian(?). Memories work in strange ways, why do I remember this from over 10 years ago yet I retained nothing from geography class? (my friends can vouch for me).
Other than walking the dog, I didn’t really go out so this outfit was pretty much just for the challenge’s sake. I would have otherwise stayed in sweats. 2 more days of my 13 for 30!! It will be like having a brand new wardrobe. That will make it easier with the shopping ban.
This batch makes so much, I suggested making half or 2/3 of it if you are just 2.
